Daisy Swanson, along with her Aunt Iris, co-own Daisy's Tea house serving mouth watering pastries, soups and tea's. Daisy is a widow with two teenage girls. When her aunt starts dating Harvey Fitz, owner of a men's apparel store and wealthy, it's a bone of contention between Tess and her sister (Daisy's mom). It seems one thing Harvey is not, is not quite divorced. He is in the process of a less than amicable settlement negotiations with his soon-to-be ex-wife.
When Tess goes out to the garden of the café to wait for Harvey to pick her up for a date, she finds him dead, obviously a victim of homicide. When the police zero in on her aunt and not appearing to search for any other viable suspects, Daisy starts her own investigation. Can Daisy find the real killer before her aunt is arrested for murder?
As with her other books, Murder with Lemon Tea Cakes is a well written, engaging read. I like the characters, the setting and the author also includes some mouth watering recipes. If you like well written cozy mysteries, check this one out!
Note: I was given an advance copy of this book from the author in exchange for an honest review.
Willow Creek, Pennsylvania after the death of her husband.
Daisy and her Aunt Iris have started a Tea Garden which
serves a large variety of teas, scones, tea cakes plus other
goodies depending on the time and day of the week.
The story is set the Amish Country of Lancaster County.
Daisy and Aunt Iris use the available fruits and vegetables
from the locals. They provide parking places for horse and
buggies at Daisy’s Tea Garden in addition to the regular
area for cars and buses.
Aunt Iris has been dating a man separated from his wife
for about three years and in the final stages of his divorce.
The man has disinherited his children and has the reputation
of being a relentless business man.
Aunt Iris discovers his dead body in their tea garden. Who
would have killed him?
When a Aunt Iris becomes the main suspect, Daisy decides
to investigate on her own.
Great array of well-defined, well developed characters
involved in an unpredictable plot. Moves at a steady
pace with vivid descriptions of the houses and area
where Daisy lives and works. Plus lots of food ideas with
recipes after the book ends.
I also learned about a variety of teas.
Daisy has two cats: Marjoram, a tortoiseshell with
unmistakably unique markings and Pepper, a black with
white fluffy spots on her chest.
Murder, house trashing, suspense with many suspects
all combined with some humor, family issues and a hint
of romance to make this a good read.
I really enjoyed this book and was instantly drawn to the characters. They seem so real and have real life problems and concerns. The many emotions running through each is palpable and the reader is engrossed in the story every step of the way.
